Menopause Support That You Need To Know About•
Posted on May 22 2019
We’re back from a busy fortnight at This Morning Live, the Meg's Menopause Conference and the Positive Pause Feel Good Fair and we have news.
Not only did we meet a lot of lovely ladies to get feedback on the clothing (watch out for a separate blog post coming soon) but we saw and spoke to some amazing businesses and doctors who could all help you manage your menopause symptoms better.
There’s more to menopause than hot flushes, we know, so we’ve compiled a list of the people we met that could give you more help with certain issues. Here it is:
The Yes Organic Intimacy Company – a certified organic plant-based range of natural intimacy products.
Sylk – a naturally silky lubricant offering effective relief to vaginal dryness.
Dr Shahzadi Harper – Dr Harper (right, pictured with rower Shirley Thompson) takes a holistic and integrative approach to women and the menopause. Lots of advice about balancing hormones. A former NHS doctor, she now has a private clinic on the world famous Harley Street in London.
Dr Louise Wiseman – she’s writing a book called ‘Your Best Life- A Doctor’s Secret Guide To Radiant Health Over 40’. Her website is full of tips from the experts about how to live a long and balanced life and she’s a former NHS GP.
Eve Appeal – dedicated to raising awareness about the five different types of gynaecological cancers (womb, cervix, vaginal, vulval and ovarian) the Eve Appeal’s website is the place to go for symptom checkers and support. If you suspect something isn’t right with your body or notice something changing, its vital to ask for help early.

Are we missing anything? If there’s a specific resource that you rate that’s helped you manage your menopause symptoms, send us a message on Facebook – facebook.com/BecomeTM or Instagram @become_tm Also, get in touch if you are a business in the menopause space and we've missed you out. Can anyone help us find support groups and wellness groups operating outside of London and accessible for people in different areas of the UK? We would love to do a follow-up blog post or compile a directory full of different menopause aides to help as many people as possible.
Please contribute to help us build the ultimate list that stops us from letting the menopause take over our lives!
